If so, we're in pretty good shape capwise and with Boyle's contract running out before Malkin and Letang's contracts come up, I'd love to have him on the team.

From what I understand, 3rd line RW, 3C are your team needs. How about Niskanen/D prospect+TK+Jeffrey+pick? Niskanen can be a stopgap #4 for you. Kennedy is a playoff proven 3rd liner. Scores big goals and hustles every night. Dustin Jeffrey is a very capable 3C. Fully healed from his knee injury.
His availability depends on DW. If DW feels his window is closing and it's win or get fired, he'll keep Boyle. If he thinks the window has already closed and it's time to build he'll move Boyle. I'm in the 2nd camp, but wilson has been around a decade already and may be long in the tooth. I hope he stays around, as he's been a good GM when he's not trading for 3rd pair defensemen.
